Six Senses Laamu is a large enough island to cater perfectly for couples wanting a romantic escape in an over water villa to families wanting a more active break, staying in beach villas. Families love the island's kids club and there are plenty of activities to keep kids super busy. The service here is exceptional with every guest allocated a Guest Experience Manager 'GEM' to look after your every need.

We can arrange trips both morning and afternoon.

Access is via a bridge with some nests facing the beach and others set higher in the canopy of the palm trees. An arched doorway leads you in.
